I need help / advice as i know diddly squate about cars and being completely honest, have had some very bad experiences form previous garages.

My partner has a 2009 plate 1.4 petrol Peugeot 207.

four months ago, we topped up the oil with the handbook recommended oil, the car then started to have the following problem.

When the engine was turned off after travelling, it sounded as the fan on the radiator was still running, creating a loud noise for approximately 15 minutes until it then stopped. This happened everytime after a journey.

We took it to Peugeout as it was still under warranty, they fixed it saying it was a sensor which was something to do with the oil, which the delears garage swapped for a new one.

we had no further problem for the following months untile last week!!

my partner noticed that when she accelerated the car appeared to be losing power, alomost to the point of stalling.

I took it for a drive and noticed nothing of any concern ( i thought it was they way she was driving it!)The oil light came on and , again it topped it up with the handbook reccommended oil.

Again the same issue arose with what appeared to be the fan on the radiator staying on for approximately 15 / 20 minutes after the engine was turned off.

The following day i used it to commute to work some 20 odd miles away, an emergency light came on stating "ANTI POLLUTION FAULTY" all the stats for mileage left in tank, MPG had dissapeared from the display board above the radio.

Then as i was plodding along at 30 MPH the car lost almost all its power and very nearly stalled. The happened 5 times on the 20 mile journey home, where my speed rarely exceeds 50MPH due to trafic enforcement.

Yesterday, after driving to relatives 2 miles form home, i noticed that when i turned off the engine the fan issue was still there yet there appeared to be a burning smell, albeit a very weak smell, coming frome the engine.

As i stated before, i have been bitten / ripped off by garages before and am weary of the estimated cost implications to solve these issues.

From my description could anyone give me an example, rough idea of what the issue is and the potential cost to put right!!??

Bloody typical that something like this comes along when the warranty has just expired!!

any help or advice would be gratefully recived.

thanks.

Trust me when I say I think this is a £200 max job but then again :D

I need your build number off your car. Its on a sticker in the door shut and is the top line of bold numbers starting 10,11..... or 12.....

The fan usually comes on as a symptom of the engine management being lit. Got a diagnostic check done. Your engine is a BMW one and can suffer from a few faults. Updating the engine ecu software cures alot of them.

Im expecting that the build code will be before 12077 and if so replace the engine bay fusebox first making sure that there is no water in the fusebox connectors

All A9 or 1.6HDi before 12077 had a fusebox which had a main relay not being man enough for the system. Oil pressure warning lamps or messages combined with stalling are a common fault. Oil pressure lights are nothing to do with the engine ecu which most people assume. They pass through the fusebox to the bsi and from past experience(9 to be precise) they cause a lot of problems. Most people just read the ECU codes but if they read all other system faults they will have a few CAN codes in them which are associate faults in a TSB which Peugeot produced on this problem. Modified ones are about £70 which is cheap(£90 plus Vat labour charge my local dealer} and eliminates a known fault which causes problems which the faults on this car are suggesting

207s can suffer water ingress into the harness to from sensors
